|    I got an email from Mr. Cox who suggested I find the proper rpm file on my
| DVD and install that over the bad update version which is Volume Control
| 2.16.1 and so I looked and found the package gnome-volume-manager-2.15.0-2.fc6
| and put it on my desktop. Then I tried rpm -U and it
| errored out saying a newer version is loaded :-(

If this is the "because of the bad information I followed from this list" 
that you referred to in another message and if Mr Cox is Alan Cox, then I 
think that you should re-evaluate.

Alan Cox has been one of the most senior Linux developers.  He also
seems to speak fairly carefully in public email.  You may find his
statements hard to interpret (oracular) but they are likely correct.
